New Vendor!
Lively Up Kombucha of Muskegon
Lively Up Kombucha is a small kombucha brewery based out of Muskegon Michigan. We pride ourselves in using organic botanical herbs, flowers and roots. Our brew is long aged, brewed in small batches weekly and bottled in amber glass to ensure vigorous probiotic cultures and stamina. Quality practices and organic ingredients are the foundation to our ethics. Our brew is dry, authentic and raw. Our goal is to educate our local community on the importance of introducing beneficial bacteria into our lives and how it can affect our bodies, mind and soul-spreading the joys of health into the world around us.
For our first market at Sweetwater we will have our 16oz bottles with both flavors:
Jammin Ginger-Oolong Tea brewed with Ginger, Turmeric & Hibiscus

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
October on the farm is the time of winding down. Each harvest day empties the fields a little more, and as they empty, we begin our end-of-season clean up. Even so, there are a few jobs that, rather than put the past year to bed, look ahead to next one: for example, my favorite fall task, planting garlic, really the first job of next season and a reminder that the farm’s year is not a point-to-point sprint but a big wheel, and with each turn we’re bound to cover just a little more ground.
This week we likely will be bringing:
LAST, LAST CHANCE (I mean it this time) for tomatoes: red slicers, mini-Romas, and San Marzano paste tomatoes.
Napa cabbages
Storage cabbages
Brussels sprouts
Sweet peppers
Hot peppers
Green tomatoes
Baby leeks
Additionally, we will have potted rosemary plants.
EGGS! We will also have eggs from our pastured heritage-breed hens.
